Brimham Rocks are peculiar balancing rock formations on Brimham Moor. The property is open all year around; typically from 8 a.m. until dusk. Entry is free but car parking is charged for visitors who are not members of the National Trust. There are many variations of rock formations, caused by Millstone Grit being eroded by water, glaciation and wind, most of which have achieved amazing shapes. Many formations have been named, though imagination is required and the correct viewing angle is helpful. Examples include the Sphinx, the Watchdog, the Camel, the Turtle and the Dancing Bear.
